California to regulate cow farts

I would mock this, but it comes pre-mocked from the California Legislature:
GALT, Calif. (AP) — California is taking its fight against global warming to the farm.
The nation's leading agricultural state is now targeting greenhouse gases produced by dairy cows and other livestock.
Despite strong opposition from farmers, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.
Not sure what you could add to that.

"Now listen here, Bessie. I'm gonna have to change your diet so you won't -- oh my gawd, that one was really nasty -- so you won't break the law. After all -- jeez, can you please stop that while I'm talking to you?? Anyway, Governor Brown thinks you are partly responsible for global -- oh, for pity sake! Stop acting like a damn cow, will ya???"

Soon they will be metering them, and confiscating the offending bovines.

I wonder who will be more up in arms about this issue: cattle farmers, or animal rights activists (clearly flatulence is a bovine free speech issue).

When California outlaws beef and bovine dairy products like cheese, milk, and ice cream, I'll believe they are serious.
